Dark Hollow Falls in Shenandoah Park

Falls Flowing Full from Snow Melt and Spring Rains

Shenandoah National Park has always been a special place to our family. As a girl, my Mother hiked Old Rag and White Oak Canyon. Skyland was always where we had family reunion. When my Mother and Father passed away we gathered one last time at Skyland to remember them.

Big Meadows was where my wife and I spent the first night of our honeymoon. Bridesburg cottage had fireplaces in the rooms and even in late May it was nice to have a warm fire.

This past Tuesday my son continued the tradition... proposing to his girl at Dark Hollow Falls! When she said 'absolutely' another generation made Shenandoah their special place as well!
